Nice looking arbor Pete. Is the SHCS long enough to reach to the threaded hole which I assume is threaded into the mount end of the arbor? Could be just the picture but it looks short  :shrug:

Heh, yep the c'bore in the end is quite deep. That's the longest 3/8-24 SHCS I had!! There's about 5/8" engagement
with a 1/8" thick saw.

Thanks guys, I do appreciate the comments. The Benchmaster, with it's MT2 spindle, is sorta limited for tooling available. The head space is also fairly limited so a lot of off the shelf tooling is less than wonderful, and the 1/2"
max collet size won't handle 3" saws very well. So......

I make a bit of stuff but have never posted anything before.

That's a very nice design of arbor, Pete, the minimal depth below the cutter is a most useful feature. An attractive piece of tooling.  A pretty large pile of swarf after turning that, I should think, looks like it came from 1 1/2" bar...?
 On my Myford S7, I have drilled and taper reamed a hole in the base of the swiveling top slide and through into the cross-slide, (having set up previously for turning a Morse taper of course! ) so that I can now set the taper angle for No 2 Morse just by tapping a taper pin into the two lined up holes.  Handy if you are making up an assortment of tooling for the mill, etc. over a period of time.  ( Though if you have a proper taper turning attachment......)

Nice one Pete and I also like the way you did it.  Which now reminds me that I have two 3MT blank arbors which I got for this purpose but never actually did them.

Another useful tool  :ThumbsUp:  :ThumbsUp: Is the big 'foot' on the DTI a standard accessory?
Best regards

The large 'button' is available I think, but I make my own as they are a really simple lathe job. I make them out of whatever material desired (I don't worry about hardening). The standard AGED indicators have a 4-48 female thread so that's easy. I just eyeball most dimensions to suit the need.

I  make 'em large, small, long, short, whatever. I think I made that one to span gear teeth....
